Most people who know me know I have a special love affair with concerts and live music. So you can imagine my delight when Memorial Day weekend rolled around, and we were able to make our annual pilgrimage to Hart Plaza in downtown Detroit for Movement, an electronic music festival. What’s special to me about this festival is not so much the music, but the fact that it usually ends up being a gathering place for good friends we haven’t seen in awhile. With just about all of us in different cities (Chicago, Berkley, Wyandotte, and East Lansing on this particular year), it gets harder and harder to see everyone with regularity. Meeting up in Hart Plaza becomes a great excuse to listen to some decent music, have a few drinks, eat high-quality carnie food, catch up, and dance our pants off. (That part is optional, but c’mon, why wouldn’t you?) This year was no exception. The weather was beautiful, the city was teeming with people and so many good sights to see.
Until next time, Detroit.
